Acadiana escaped the icy conditions that are currently taking over much of the south, but the weather is still causing problems for travelers.
Over 5,000 flights have been cancelled nationwide since Saturday because of the storm. Airlines like Southwest and American Airlines have halted hundreds of flights to and from Atlanta and Dallas on Tuesday. Airline officials say icy road ways and snow are just too dangerous to risk. Flights to and from the Atlanta and Dallas airports have been cancelled or delayed at Lafayette Regional Airport because of the storm.
If you’re traveling to any areas affected by the winter storm airport officials suggest calling your airline to check the status of your flight.
